    My last Purchased Firearm is a Used Ruger 'Convertible Single Six .22 CAL" that I have had 'Customized:
    - New .25ACP/6.35 browning 10-5/8" Barrel
    - Some 'Numerich Arms' Replacement .22WMR 8 shot cylinders and replacement SS 'Hand'.
    -- Ream and Chamber the 1st Cylinder for .25ACP/6.35 Browning Cartridge.
    -- Ream and Chamber the 2nd Cylinder for .250ALRM/6.35x32mmSR (loaded to 1.400" Overall length).
    -- Ream and Chamber the 3rd Cylinder for .250ALS/6.35x28.6mmSR (loaded to 1.400" overall length)/6.35x26mmSR/.25MACP.
    -- Convert from RF to CF and fit the new hand to properly time the 8 shot cylinders.

    This began last December and I received the Converted revolver and the 1st Cylinder along with the 32 empties my gunsmith fired in testing this last Friday.

    Last 4 of mine have all been Hipoint guns. Started with a .40sw carbine, slipped a 70$ red dot sight on it and wow, that was fun. But the wife wanted one that did not "bump my shoulder" so much. So enter Hipoint #2 in 9mm. So at the range sighting in the red dot on that one, the RSO asked if I liked them. I was honest, yes they are ugly as sin, but they seem to be very dependable. And at reasonably close ranges it will take the center right out of a bullseye.

    So the RSO says I have one, but never took to it, it is a 9mm, you interested?

    I told him straight up it would depend on price. Only had 200$ into the first 2, and I would not likely go above that. "You'd be interested at 200$" Yes, very much so. So enter in Hipoint #3.

    So that is 3 pistol caliber carbines.

    And they all shoot, dependable as you could ask for.

    So a couple months back walked into my local pawn shop and he had a Hipoint 9mm pistol, for under 200$.
    So when I got him down to 125 I said ok, I'll take it. Again, ugly, but solid, functional. Likes Jacketed bullets. So I will shortly try some bigger .357 boolits shoehorned into a 9mm and see if we can work something out that it likes.

    Leading was not a problem but it was keyholing at 20 feet. And it tended to shoot large patterns not tight groups. So I try a box of Federal Jacketed, keyholing stopped, and the groups shrunk by 2/3'rds.

    Bought the wife a Hi-point 995TS 9mm carbine in pink camo. Talking about ugly but it's fun to shoot and groups well. Then bought a S&W MP15-22 in pink platinum. It will be here Wesnday. So now my wife owns 3 firearms in pink camo.

    Last summer I bought a high standard 22 revolver made in the 60's and a revelation bolt rebored to 358 Win.. No new guns since then, but encore bbls in 300 Win Mag, 7mm Rem, PM if you want it, contender bbls showed up in some order in 22 hornet, 7-30 waters and 357. The last one in a factory box from a new manufacturer was in 14 or 13m not really sure, Savage model 10 in 308.

    There is no problem so great, that it cannot be solved by the proper application of high explosives.
